Windows are an important component in your Bel Air, MD or York, PA area home. They allow fresh air and light inside and provide a view of the outside world. However, problems with your home’s windows may affect your comfort and your home’s energy efficiency. At York Home Performance, we often receive calls about installing replacement windows to solve problems with drafts or poor performance.

Are Drafty Windows Costing You Money?

Windows can be a source of lost energy efficiency and comfort for several reasons:

  • Single-paned glass

  • Poorly installed

  • Air leakage around the frame

  • Cannot open or close completely

  • Poor insulation around the frame

If your windows are showing any of these symptoms, it may be time to have a BPI certified home envelope professionals from York Home Performance review your windows as part of an energy audit to review your entire home’s performance. An energy audit and further energy efficiency improvements — including windows— may qualify for a rebate for customers of FirstEnergy Utilities or Baltimore Gas & Electric’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® (BGE HPwES) program.

Do You Need Replacement Windows?

The upshot is that while your windows may be leaking air, there may be some simple ways to stop those drafts, including applying air sealing spray foam and ensuring the surrounding insulation is adequate. However, if your windows are cracked or broken, have condensation or don’t open and close properly, it may be time for new replacement windows.
